“Lagos style is fresh and different. Even with the tailors, they get very innovative with their stuff, with the cuts. When my parents used to make the traditional wares, it was a little bit baggy. But now the tailors are able to infuse the European style, making it slim-fit. Lagos style is different, man. Innovative.” – WizKid
“I didn’t have accessories when I started my career. Did you see me wearing bling-bling when I did ‘Hola at Your Boi?’ No! I hustled to get money to buy them, and there is no crime if I show it or flaunt it to my fans because they gave me money to buy them.” – WizKid
